“The Wildlife - The Walled Life” (5:25 mins.)

It was my 49th birthday this week and I have big furry news.  πŸ»πŸ¦ŠπŸ¦†πŸ¦…πŸ¦‰πŸ¦‹πŸ¦“πŸ˜πŸ¦’πŸ  My friend Ilana Block and I are excited to share a brand new ‘music photeo’ we made together!

“The Wildlife - The Walled Life” is a 5-minute, photo-based music video that blends Ilana’s spectacular wildlife photography with my photos of some of the stunning animal murals up on the walls across our beloved Montreal.

Oh, and we sing on it too!

Wait... adorable animals, Montreal murals AND the velvety voices of heretofore unknown Canadian singing sensations Lani n’ Ez?!

You sez:  “Okay, THIS I gotta see...” 

Ez sez: “Go ahead, see it!”

WATCH “The Wildlife - The Walled Life” right here:

Mike Cohen, “Cohen in the City” host, with
photographers Ezra Soiferman and Ilana Block. Watch.

Once you’re done watching, learn about the behind-the-scenes of our project at this “On Air - Cohen in the City” feature Ilana and I were guests at on at the Suburban:

Special thanks to our friend Gregg Silver who co-produced the video’s soundtrack and arranged it so beautifully. 

Extra special thanks to all the incredibly talented mural artists who brighten the walls of Montreal with their art and special thanks to all the animals who share their planet with us. 

As the song sez: “May the animals live long, may the chaos settle down…” We made this project to let the animals bring colour, joy and light to us all in these trying times. 

Finally, big thanks to Ilana for creating this with me. Your passion for animals is inspiring. 

Friends, strangers, and animals with a wifi signal, if you dig the new video, please bark, meow, baa, roar, speak and spread the mothercluckin’ word. 

Feel free to share this music photeo with your friends, co-workers and even with kids too. This is an all-ages adventure and we want these creatures to travel. They have lots to teach.  πŸ‡πŸ¦©πŸΏπŸ¦œπŸ¦ŒπŸŽπŸ™πŸžπŸ¦„

❤️ to all from Montreal! πŸ’«
